“Pretty good Italian”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

The best thing was that it's so close to our hotel. The worst was that they served old rancid butter and when we pointed it out (rather politely) they seemed to shrug it of.
Other than that the food was pretty good and for their Pasta Carbonara I would give them A-.

“EXCELLENT Italian restaurant”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

The chef here is a wizard. Everything that came out of the kitchen was so tasty, good looking, and scrumptous. I literally thought about licking the sauce off my plate a couple times. The stuffed eggplant appetizer was fantastic as was their one and only salad. Beautiful decor too with a super attentive and friendly staff. You'll like this place a lot.

“Wonderful from start to finish”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Happened upon this little spot when another nearby restaurant was closed for Carnival. They had a wonderful window table, were warm and welcoming and their food was marvelous! Reasonably priced, generous portions and friendly service. We'll be back during our next trip to Panama!

“Great Food and Wines”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

I love this restaurant. The food is incredible and the dishes are finely prepared for each person. I've been there many times and each time is a wonderful experience. I also suggest this restaurant for their wines as they have an excellent wine list.
